Thank you, Grady Parents, Teachers and Partners!   Thanks to all of you our PTA has just purchased, and Grady Elementary will soon receive, 37 laptops on a portable laptop cart! 

The idea of the laptop cart is to make it easier for our school to deliver the newest technology to our students.  The laptop cart will allow the computers to go from classroom to classroom, so that the computers can be utilized by more students during a single school day. 

The computers will be used to teach the i-Ready computer-based curriculum.  The i-Ready program is a research-based, classroom-proven program that helps educators effectively address the diverse needs of every student.  The award-winning products include reading, mathematics, intervention, language arts, test prep, special education, early childhood, and more.  The laptops will also be used to facilitate student testing because more and more tests are being given on computers. 

We applaud our parents, teachers and our Tiger Partners, especially the Agazzi Family which donated $3,000 to this project.  We are also grateful to the administration for suggesting this purchase.  We are all helping to bring state-of the-art educational tools to our school.
